Some models of batteries offer different post orientations in the same physical size for different models of machines. Please check the numbers on your original battery to make sure you order the correct battery, if you need assistance please call us at 705 855 0473 or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org
The battery will connect to your cables.. You will need to remove and turn the nut on its side and insert it back into the post this will turn the battery into a side post just like the OEM Harley Davidson battery.
It's very difficult to calculate the life of a battery.. It all depends on how the battery has been discharged during use and how quickly it has been recharged. Usual scenario with using a battery maintainer you can expect up to 8 to 12 years.
Any lead acid battery or AGM battery should be kept fully charged as much as possible, to charge our batteries you can use a battery maintainer to do this. We recommend our battery maintainer part number 612-1, which is available on our website.
Yes that is somewhat true, most conventional battery chargers will not recognize a battery if the voltage is lower than 11 volts.. This is why we always recommend putting a battery maintainer on your unit when not in use.
Your machine should have a charging system in it, so the battery is only used for starting the unit and accepting the charge from your alternator/stator so the unit can hold a constant 12v source to stay running.
Any battery needs to be charged periodically, leaving the machine sit over the winter is not necessarily a good thing for the battery or the machine itself , the newer units do have a constant draw off the battery for clocks and memory etc, this is why we do suggest putting a battery maintainer on your unit over the winter. This will help to keep your battery in optimal condition.
